On this segment of HarperAudio!,
Author Ernest Hemingway reads a gripping segment from an untitled "work in progress." Hemingway, who started his career as a newspaperman and foreign correspondent, often set his stories in exotic locations. He won the Pulitzer Prize in 1952 and the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. This fragment, taped with a wire recorder or transistorized pocket recorder sometime in the late 1950s, is one of the few examples of Hemingway reading his own work. The story typifies Hemingway’s fascination with violence and its aftermath and shows the masterful story-telling technique that has made him one of the 20th century’s most widely imitated writers.
